Katya Savchencko (@shanovna_s) grew up in the Donbas region of Ukraine and moved to Bucha following the Russian invasion of that region in 2014. This year, following the full-scale invasion, she survived several days of the brutal and murderous Russian occupation of Bucha before escaping by train with her sister. She kept a diary of her days in Bucha, which she recently published on Medium in English translation. Savchhencko joined Benjamin Wittes on #LiveFromUkraine.

Our next guest of #LiveFromUkraine will be @shanovna_s, who escaped the Donbas region in 2014 and settled in Bucha—only to have the Russians show up there. She survived, and wrote a Bucha diary.
